US cancer care company Varian has opened an office in Midrand, Johannesburg, to support regional growth.
The new facility employs field service engineers, sales and service managers, as well as back office support professionals. Varian already employs local sales and service managers in KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape, providing broad coverage throughout South Africa.
In Cape Town, Varian also offers advanced education courses in collaboration with Groote Schuur Hospital. Several teams from Zimbabwe, Ghana, Ethiopia, and Libya have successfully attended these courses, facilitating a better standard of care on the continent.
Varian develops and delivers cancer care solutions and says it is focused on creating a world without fear of the disease.
Varian EMEIA president Jean-Luc Devleeschauwer said: “We are proud to serve the South African market directly. We have integrated well with local healthcare providers and have witnessed great growth in the private and public sector, gaining significant market share in both our sales and service operations.
“Opening an office in South Africa has been of paramount importance for our local team and offers a base from which they can collaborate, provide sales and service support to our customers, and strengthen relationships with key stakeholders.
“In all aspects, our footprint in South Africa has greatly improved access to care throughout the continent.”
